PRESSS RELEASE FROM THE SPOKANE VALLEY POLICE DEPT: On Tuesday, July 16, 2013 just before 5 p.m., Spokane Valley Sheriff's deputies responded to a vehicle/bicycle collision on Evergreen Road at 28th Avenue in Spokane Valley.  

According to the driver of the vehicle involved, as well as witnesses, the 10-year-old bicyclist was riding southbound on the west shoulder of Evergreen approaching 28th Avenue. Suddenly, he crossed into the southbound lane in front of the 2001 Ford Escape as he tried to cross Evergreen.
